Been a while since I posted here.

I still need to play Remember11, but for the Ever17 fan, there is also 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors for the DS. I recently finished that, and I can say that it's a pretty compact infinity-like game, with many twists and revelations on par with Coco's route. The only problems I have with it are the game system (one save file, can't skip puzzles, no gallery, etc.) and the ending is pretty wtf. The dialogue bits are great, you can expect punny jokes like Coco's Ame-jokes in just about every room if you look in the right spots.

Also, Clover is awesome. Yes, I'm still very much biased for pink hair. But she is the most popular character in Japan, and is probably really popular over here too. >_>

Hey, I don't know why I put it off for so long, but I scanned some pages of the Limited Edition Ever17 pamplet that came with the PSP version of the game. The following images are all new pieces of art that were only made for the PSP version.

Spoiler for Pictures:


Sorry if the quality sucks, it was my first time scanning something.

Personally, my favorite is the Tsugumi one, though I have a feeling a certain someone will like the one after that better.

That one was actually made for the PS2 version, so you might be able to find it if you go hunting for it, but no, the others aren't avaliable digitally.

UPDATE: Found it. It's avaliable at this link:

The scans reminds me of something a tad problematic with Ever17... the character design isn't exactly constant (weirdly, the problem is much more noticeable with CG than character sprites).

I think this was a bigger problem with Remember11 rather than Ever17- I always thought the character designs were constant in-game to the CGs in Ever17, but in Remember11, it felt like they were done by two completely different people. Never7's character designs to CGs were pretty consistent, but they too had some problems occassionally.

Also, keep in mind that this was just promo art- it's not drawn in the same style as a CG is.

Well, Remember11 had distinctly 2 different artists: the character sprites do not match the CG at all.
In fact, it seems the designer who made Ever17's did the R11 ones, but didn't do the sprites.
I personally think it would have been better with that style for everything: R11 sprites had... some sort of a drowsy look for some reason (I really can't stand Kokoro's character sprite design )

Maybe it's because the game looked too realistic compared to Ever17. Ever17's characters were quite vibrant due to their various different hair colors, clothing, and the environments, while mostly mantaining a blue theme, still looked rather lively.

By contrast, everything in Remember11 looks dead in comparison- everyone (except for Utsumi) has realistic hair colors, wear mostly plain colors like brown or white (the only one that really stuck out was Hotori's bright red jacket.) and the environments had this dull white/brown/grey scheme going for everything. It's understandable due to its setting, but because it looks so realistic, we probably find it drowsy because it looks too similar to real life.

*cough* Do want.

And yeah I have the bottom right one too. Definitely want the Coco/Sara one in better quality.

It´s funny to see that artists frequently draw Sara and Coco together even though they never speak to each other throughout game.

That's true. I don't think they even once directly spoke to each other, not even in the Drama CDs.

Kinda sad, actually. I remember going through the whole game, waiting to see the connection between the two... Well, so it goes.

Anyway, today's the 17th, which means... Happy birthday, Coco!

... Now if only I could find more pics...

Hello, I have a couple questions about this game. My friend is going to let me borrow his copy in a few weeks when I get to see him, and I know a few spoilers (not sure if I am misinformed or not) about the game.

I am mostly wondering whether they are spoilers that will get in the way of me having the most enjoyable experience of this game.

The spoilers I know are not very specific and there are few of them, so maybe it's not that bad that I know them because I don't understand them. But if someone could let me know whether they will get in the way of my enjoyment of the game at all, I would appreciate it.

Also, if someone could please tell me if I have any of these wrong - but don't tell me why or what the real spoiler is.

These mostly come from reading about the game at a time when I did not think I would ever get to play it.

Spoiler for Spoilers I have read:


I think that is everything I know. Is it alright because I don't really understand the spoilers? Or will these be a problem when I play (will things be less mid-screw-y or less suspenseful)?

I am sure there is much more to the game than the handful of things that I know, but I was just wondering.

I'd say that your mind-screwability has reduced by only ~0.5%. You're right: There's WAAYY more to the story than that. Plus, the fact that you can't explain them and that you don't understand them also shows that you haven't been "properly spoiled"

You're safe. Enjoy Ever17!

P.S. Come back and read your comments about the spoilers again when you finish the game. I'm sure you'll have a good chuckle

Some of those spoilers are a bit problematic to know, but if you don't understand them, then they won't even matter. Most of them aren't really big spoilers, but like I said, if you don't understand them, then it's fine. I myself accidentally learned a spoiler or two about the game, but I didn't understand what they even meant until I played the game.

BTW, people, the impossible has finally happened- an Ever17 typo patch! It was made by GameFAQs user wafflecannon, and you can get it here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?bj30eajuhb9b963

With this patch, most of the annoying typos are gone, such as "Kidere", "Kidink", and many other ones. However, for those of you who like nostalgia, the hacker is no longer known.

Anyway, give thanks to wafflecannon, not me, and enjoy the patch.

Note that it has not been fully tested yet, so be sure to keep an extra copy of the original script.dat file.

Oh wow, I must go thank him.

Thank you too, GundamAce, for sharing this!!!111!!!1oneone

But naturally, I still knows the hacker, even without being asked.

Thanks very much - I am very glad to hear that my mind-screwability is still very high. I definitely don't understand those spoilers at all - what I wrote in that box is the total extent that I know - I have no other thoughts or understanding about them.

Well, that's such a relief to hear. I am very, very excited about this game!! Less than 3 weeks until I get to play it.

I'm also glad to hear about the typo patch.
